Free from violence – First Action Plan 2018–2021

The plan is the first of a three-stage strategy to end family violence and all forms of violence against women.

Under the First Action Plan, we have:

  • Established Respect Victoria, a statutory authority that leads our prevention efforts. Respect Victoria focuses on:
    • research and evaluation
    • policy and advocacy
    • communications and engagement.
  • Delivered 135 primary prevention initiatives. We partnered with leaders from many settings and diverse community groups.
  • Enabled a more capable and connected specialist prevention sector, through:
    • dedicated, sector-led professional development
    • support projects.
  • Launched Respect Victoria’s Prevention of Family Violence Data PlatformExternal Link . The platform tracks progress towards preventing family violence and violence against women.
  • Engaged the Victorian community in Respect Victoria’s awareness raising campaigns:
    • Respect Women: ‘Call it Out’
    • Respect Older People: ‘Call it Out’
    • Pride, Respect, Equality.
